Fire in Southern Quebec

by NASA

Published June 2, 2010


A thick river of smoke flowed southeast over New England from a fire in southern Quebec, Canada, on May 31, 2010. This image of the U.S. Northeast was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's Terra satellite at 11:10 a.m. U.S. Eastern time. The smoke plume is over 200 kilometers (120 miles) wide near Cape Cod, but it narrows offshore. The plume spans the entire width of the image--1,900 kilometers (1,200 miles).
